It's important for citizens to understand that #marijuana use is still illegal in #Maryland . However, the possession of small amounts of it (10 grams or less) will not result in criminal penalties such as jail time or a criminal record - instead, such infractions will be treated as civil, and therefore will be punishable by a citation and/or fine.

For supporters, it's a legislative high. Maryland's House of Delegates has passed a law decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana.

Absolutely appalling.
 
Massachusetts government crime lab chemist admits to tainting evidence in as many as 40,000 cases. Hundreds of incarcerated defendants have already been released.

Maryland Senate bill (known as the #secondchancebill ) will attempt to give ex-convicts a better chance to gain employment.  The bill will apply to convictions for certain non-violent misdemeanors, and "if the convicted person had no new offenses within five years after the sentence was completed, employers and colleges wouldn’t be able to look at these criminal records."

#Maryland foresees significant expenses in light of the Court of Appeals ruling: defendants are entitled to state-furnished counsel at initial hearings before a district court commissioner, because the defendant’s liberty is at stake.

Great article to read for someone who is considering not hiring an attorney for a criminal charge.

Thinking about handling your criminal legal case yourself? Should you really have to pay a criminal attorney if you are innocent? Should I wait to see if the charges will be dismissed before I hand over my hard-earned money to a Pittsburgh defense attorney? Be sure to read this excellent article before deciding these issues.

Many individuals who are charged with crimes believe that they will have to fight for their innocence at trial. Unless they consult with an experienced #criminalattorney , they would not know that cases can often be resolved without the need to go to trial. #Nolo has written a very informative article that discusses this topic.
